Details

Baby Jesus and his parents are settled into their makeshift lodging in the stable, kept company by all of the animals who live there: doves, cow, chickens, sheep, donkey, etc. And because animals seem to have a special connection to babies and young children, each and every one of these animals wants to do its part to welcome the baby with its very own song. But the donkey -- oh! the donkey -- is afraid its braying will just be too loud for the baby. Meanwhile, the doves share their muffled cooing, the cow sings her low, warm song, and the goats share their gentle maaa, maaa as each animal waits to share its welcome. Finally, the baby looks over at the shy little donkey, who sings his noisy Hee-aw! Hee-aw! Hee-aw! At this, the baby laughs with joy and the donkey snuggles close, keeping the baby warm, while all eyes in the stable close for the night. This lovely Christmas book will appeal to young children with its babies, animals, animal sounds, and a simple story they can relate to. Soft yet richly hued images bring all of the gentleness of the story to life. We have books signed by the inimitable Nancy Tafuri, while supplies last.

After reading this book, I wanted to buy it for all 3 grandchildren ages 1-3 to keep forever...a beautiful vision of the nativity and animal characters little children can identify with and emotions they have all the way through elementary school and even life. Beautiful illustrations also.
